1.) Weak nuclear force 2.) Strong nuclear force 3.) Gravitational force 4.) Electromagnetic force
These four forces of physics hold the entire universe together. Yes sir, there are only four. Our hobby has a
front row seat at door number four. Yes we use all four but electromagnetics is the heart beat of the sport.
Fact is a motor is a dynamo. A regular little ol' electromagnetic generator. (pun intended) A dynamo or
generator is designed to have a specific output. That's what the winding and rotor magnet assembly is all about.
Different setups have different outputs. Something mechanical spins the generator and viola. Through the physics
of electromagnetics electrical power is created. Operated as motors the same is true but in reverse. We drive with
electricity to create mechanical power. These devices are always more efficient generators than motors.
The act of "blueprinting" is by nature an operation that attempts to assure that the inputs and outputs give the
maximum possible result. Heres a FACT. The best blueprinting job in the universe will not create more power than
the design intends. Another FACT. A bad job or one left undone will assure less power than design WILL result.
There is NO middle ground. A dog is a dog and on track performance that produces a result beyond the capability
of the design isn't a good job done better. It's a cheater trying to convince you he isn't. Between these two are the
first and last losers.
You can't produce more power than the capability of the system without changing the nature of the system.
The resistance and voltage set an absolute maximum on power. Argue that with Ohm, not me. To get more than
that one of those MUST change. That said; "there is many a slip twixt cup and lip". You can squander as much
of your potential as you wish right up to...all of it.
The best blue printer in the world will never get perfect results and that little fact is your assurance you have
room to beat the best. There is no perfectly manufactured materials nor are there any perfect human beings. You
have lots of room.
This isn't as complicated as you may think. There are only three simple little areas to work with. How hard can
1.) Commutation efficiency. 2.) Gap flux efficiency. 3.) electro-mechanical loss minimization.
Remember, potential is resistance and voltage. The rest is just hanging on to the cards you drew.
